Morningside College Reviews
The professors are well educated and experienced and will help students who are struggling. There are plenty of professors/advisors and other staff that will help answer questions about classes, financial aid, and other things. Professors and advisors often help students build resumes and find internships/jobs. Campus is dead at night and there really isn't greek life. Hard to find parking if you're a commuter. Dorms are small and some need updating.
Morningside has a strong standing in both academics and athletics. In 2018, the Morningside Football Team became NAIA National Champions and were the only undefeated team in the state of Iowa. Morningside also has many opportunities to learn out of the classroom through study abroad and internships. With around 1,300 full-time undergrads, each degree program has a close, family-like atmosphere. The top programs are Nursing, Business, Education, and Bio/Chem. The campus itself is small but beautiful. The city of Sioux City is relatively large, but everything you need is within a 15-minute drive.
Although I enjoy going to school there, there are a few things I would change. The first one being the food. It isn’t good at all unless we are served Chicken Nuggets which happen on VERY rare occasions. I would also like to see a more diverse school because I believe at the moment we have very few people of different races at the school. I believe that the students and professors are very inviting and nice on most occasions. We have a lot of events on campus that I love to enjoy. Overall I believe that Morningside College is a average to a very good school.
